Crispy, tasty fried chicken is what KFC is all about, but the world’s largest quick-service chicken restaurant brand has become about more than just chicken over time. Founded as Kentucky Fried Chicken, KFC is known for its staple menu items of fried chicken pieces in a variety of styles. But the menu has expanded to include wraps, salads, and sandwiches. And as always, the delectable side dishes like mashed potatoes and gravy, coleslaw and corn go perfectly with a KFC bucket of chicken. In its many restaurants outside the United States, KFC also offers beef and pork products such as hamburgers, kebabs, poutine, ribs and others.

In 1930, Harland Sanders opened Sanders Court & Cafe in the front room of a gas station in Corbin, Kentucky. He was named an honorary Kentucky Colonel in 1936 for his contributions to local cuisine. Colonel Sanders began franchising in 1952 and awarded the first franchise to Pete Harman in Salt Lake City, Utah. Their handshake agreement stipulated that the corporation would receive a royalty of one nickel for each chicken Harman sold.His recipe is still a secret, but billions of Colonel Sanders' chicken dinners are served annually in more than 125 countries. KFC is now part of Yum! Brands, which also includes Pizza Hut and Taco Bell.
